This was another one of those movies I happened to miss this summer but I wasn’t too bummed about it, considering that the movie had received horrendous reviews. I figured that the movie couldn’t be too bad, especially with the fact that it starred Tom Cruise. Tom Cruise doesn’t make bad movies. In fact, I love all of his movies, except for the first Jack Reacher, but that’s a whole other story.
So I decided to watch The Mummy to see if it really was as bad as everyone said it was. And…at first…it was kind of interesting, storywise. Ahmanet was this Egyptian princess who was destined to become queen of Egypt but then her father had a son and so the little baby boy took her place as heir to the throne. So, to enact revenge, she sold her soul to the God of Death, Set, and became this evil death lady. She slit her father’s throat, killed her mother, and murdered their newborn son, and then to complete her mission, she needed to plunge this special dagger given to her by Set into the stomach of a man to bring the God of Death to life. But she was prevented from doing so, she was wrapped up like a mummy and buried alive in a casket, never to be found again.
So that was basically the prologue and then the movie started.

After last week’s riveting, suspenseful episode I was thrilled to watch this latest episode of Survivor. And then it started and the episode kept going on and on and nothing really exciting happened, except for Joe finding that idol early in the hour.
There weren’t any surprising twists, there weren’t any shocking alliances being broken, it was just a lot of dialogue and no action. And then when Simone was kicked off it wasn’t a surprise in the slightest. It was, overall, a very underwhelming episode and it’s kind of got me thinking, is this season of Survivor going to be yet another lackluster season? And if so, that’s a real shame.
Survivor is a great show but when it starts relying on older, more experienced and, truthfully, exciting players to be in each of its seasons that’s when the show is going to be in a little bit of trouble. The last season I watched that I really enjoyed that didn’t involve having players like Boston Rob or Ozzy or even the legendary Sandra had to have been, I think it was Season 32. Since then, besides Survivor: Game Changers, the seasons have just been…a little underwhelming. I’m hoping that this was just a boring episode because this is early in the season but if it keeps going at this rate this is going to be a long, boring season of Survivor.
Well, that’s my overview of Survivor this week. Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day.
